can you bring the good out

You know the kind. 

At least I hope you do. 

The ones that go out of their way to do nice things. 

They make work and the world a nicer place. 

Do you work with anyone like that? 

Or have you at any time in your career?

Currently, we have a woman who provides bagels and candy for the NY office. There are over 60 people in the office and she commutes over 2 hours to work. She’s been doing this for over 6 years.

Who does this? She does! 

These kinds of people. They are in a class of their own. 

I’m a good one… no doubt about it but I’m not in that class. 

Not gonna even pretend. 

And you know the kind that lights up a room by walking in it?

Those good ones.

I hope you know a few of them. 

They can shift the energy of a meeting and a company. 

We can all use more celebration in our lives. It’s good to take time to recognize the good stuff. 

What we focus on expands. 

Focus on the good ones. 

It’s cool to be a good one!

Xo,
Ilyse

    People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
